My husband Stan bought our family car ,he has the bill of sale

Resolved Question:

My husband Stan bought our family car ,he has the bill of sale in his name.
Stan couldnt drive, so my daughters fiancée (who then lived with us ) drove
and had his name put on the log book. We found out he has been driving without
a licence and has 15 licence offences against him so he left our home .
Can we have my fathers name put on the log book .

A persons name on the V5 logbook only shows the registered keeper who is not the same as the registered owner.

You should fill out a V62 and send it to the DVLA
